Ninety percent of the big fish in our oceans are now gone.
Scientists predict that if fishing stays at the current rate, the planet will run out of seafood by 2048, with catastrophic consequences following.
And filmmaker Rupert Murray wants you to know about it.
He posits that argument in the documentary film "End of the Line," which screens this Sunday at Movies on A Big Screen at the Guild Theatre in Sacramento.
In the film, Murray interweaves underwater and above water footage with scientific testimony to paint an alarming picture of the troubled state of the sea.
The documentary is based Charles Clover's book, "The End of the Line" that explores the devastating effect overfishing is having on fish stocks and the health of our oceans.
The screening is followed by a panel discussion including: Robert Duncan, Meat Department Manager, Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op; chef Ray Wirtz; Pamm Larry, Label GMO's - 2012 Initiative Committee member; and Mike Weber, program officer at Resources Law Group.
